    I’m sure God, an omnipotent, all-seeing, all-knowing god, creator of the universe could appear as anything he bloody-well wanted. For all anyone knows, he wanders the world guised as various people, be it man, woman or child. After all, no one knows him or his thoughts, right?

    Harry, the Oath wasn’t violated. The original doctor had another doctor take over the care of the patient, which is actually a common occurrence regardless of the reason. The child still has a physician looking after her care.

    From the article:
    “Radcliff’s first shot hit the suspect’s chest. The second shot hit the man’s gun, which jammed it. The third shot struck his midsection, the Gazette reported.”

    “Since Progressives are traditionally atheists?”
    I’m not sure I agree with that. Atheists make up such a small portion of the population compared to the percentage of progressives. Progressives come in all strips. Just look at the Pastor, for example.

    I notice that Federal laws and all but one State law (New York) have no provision stating that declining on the basis of political affiliation is discrimination. Food for thought.

    “Authorities said that the man told them that “his foot got stuck on the accelerator” and he “panicked and lost control of his vehicle.””

    He got his foot stuck a lot.
    Accelerates forward – hits vehicles in front – vehicle stops
    Throws vehicle in reverse – accelerates in reverse – hits vehicles behind – vehicle stops
    Throws vehicle in drive – accelerates forward while turning – hits more vehicles

    At any of those stages, he could have put the vehicle in park. I know he panicked, but that’s a lot of work to go through all that.

    How does regulations concerning donations to the preschool itself translate to children giving each other (ie. not the school) candy and card?

    PredPol and Crime Mapping are simply statistics. Areas and Times of day where crime occurs in high frequency and helps shift commanders to send patrols where they will most likely be needed. I don’t see those intrusive.
    AlSight, however, has the potential to be extremely intrusive, based on what it, or rather it’s operators, deem “normal.”

    Apparently, the actors themselves don’t like the movie, or the characters they portrayed.
    I know the casting company had to go way down the “wanted actors” list, as no established actors and actresses wanted the roles. I’m guessing they hadn’t read the book, and since casting calls don’t give you the script, they may not have known what they were signing up for when they signed their contracts.

    I gave no issue with a World History class teaching what the core beliefs and practices of Islam are, just as they should all of the worlds major religions. This should be done in an unbiased and clinical fashion. What I find wrong is that the class is essentially being given an assignment to “pray” and that the chapters regarding Christianity and Judaism are missing. Because 1) they are major religions in the world 2) have played a major role in the history of the world and 3) learning about Islam without first learning about the religions from which Islam roots its beliefs is an incomplete study of the religion. Islam uses parts of the Old Testament and has alternate views on who Jesus was, so without first learning where those two concepts originate, you’re left with the thought (if you know nothing of Christianity and Judaism) these are original concepts to Islam.

    I’m actually surprised that with a reaction like that she didn’t do testing early on to see if the baby had Downs. I guess it turned out for the best in the end, for both the baby and the father.

    Seriously. It’s a commercial. Who cares?
    If you disagree with their opinion, don’t spend your money with them.

    Revelations 13:16
    NIV: It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,
    KJV: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    Note the “all.” This is one office building and it’s optional. No one is being forced. What if the employee gets it implanted in the left hand? Why do people assume that the mark will be an RFID chip? What if it is literally a mark?

    I was about to comment the same thing.

    “It’s unclear where the video took place, although from the writing it appears to be in some Asian country.”

    Really? Is this journalism now? Open Chrome. Click the video to bring it up on YouTube’s page, then when Chrome asks if you want to translate, do it. OH! LOOK! It occurred in Taiwan. Which would be one of the countries you could have narrowed it down to, considering the writing styles of the various countries in the East look vastly different.

    What rule was broken? The rule in place is shoulder straps must be 2″ thick. There is nothing there that says shoulders must be covered.

  • [50] January 28, 2015 at 10:30am

    @WhoIs – The rule is right there in the article. If there was a “no sleeveless” rule, than the “2″ shoulder strap” rule would be pointless.

    woodyee – Not really. I know he was a Christian (he almost didn’t board the Beagle to enter the priesthood instead), and anyone, even an atheist like me, who owns and/or has read the book (On Origin of Species) knows how the context is framed.

    “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” – Darwin

    At the time of publication, there was much debate over not just whether his book was against God, but also whether it was complementary to God, in that it showed that God’s design was a more complex plan.

    fortherecord – ” “No God or God’s required to have morals and ethics.”:

    The whole abortion on demand, industry, proves you wrong. ”

    One can be against abortion and an atheist you know.
